Ramadan is upon us, so to all of my Muslim friends (I don't know what the proper expression is) have a good month of fasting.

Al, Ramadan is upon us but is nearly over. It ends this year on September 10.

You now know how little I know about Islam. Is this the time of year when people make the pilgrimage to Mecca for the Hodge? The heat in Mecca in September must be unbearabily hot.

I wasn't sure, so I looked it up. I found this:

What are the dates for Hajj in 2010?

Answer: Hajj is expected to fall between November 14-18, 2010.

Note: The exact dates of Islamic holidays cannot be determined in advance, due to the nature of the Islamic lunar calendar. Estimates are based on expected visibility of the hilal (waxing crescent moon following a new moon) and may vary according to location.

Thanks, it's almost over... (And the pilgrimage to Mecca is normally called the Hajj in English Smile)

The Eid on this Sept 10th is Islam's day of celebration akin to Christmas or Chinese New Year.

I'm a member of the Hodge Podge Lodge of the Mystical Order of Discordians (Reformed).

Just so we're all clear on that Smile Smile

Al, will you be going to Mecca? I think you can be a representative for Philly. The city of brotherly love visits the people of the religion of peace...it would be like Woodstock but without the music or nudity or porto-sans.

Well I hope everyone who observes it had a very rewarding Ramdan.

Now Happy Jewish New Year too, as its just begun!

Praise Eris. King kong was 3 foot 6.

I was one of the three signees necessary to register the "Madison Church of Eris Esoterica" as a student organization. (As well as the Campus Crusade for Cthulhu. Our slogan was "It found me!")

I have a "Cthulhu for President" T-Shirt. Found it at a Christian Thrift store. Irony.

As a non-christian, I'm under no moral restriction to "turn the other cheek". I'm just what you might call a civilized human being...

But don't test me! I'm capricious even at the best of times.
